You can now do more with your in-flight entertainment than watch movies and TV shows on a tiny screen. American Airlines recently announced that passengers can take language classes on Rosetta Stone as well as learn new skills and hobbies through the creative learning community Skillshare.
The partnership with the two online education companies makes American Airlines the first to offer remote learning in the air, according to a press release. As of June 1, passengers can pick from more than 150 classes on what’s called the Lifestyle in-flight entertainment channel. You can pick up some common expressions in Italian, Spanish, French, German, Japanese, and Chinese through Rosetta Stone, for example, or learn how to draw maps and frame the perfect travel photo through Skillshare.
